- Blend until the Moon Cheese becomes more like a flour/meal – there will be a few larger bits and that’s ok. Transfer to a shallow bowl so that you can bread the shrimp
- Dip each shrimp into the beaten egg then coat it with the breading mixture. Place the coated shrimp on a plate until all are coated
- Heat your oil to 350 degrees in a frying pan
- Fry the shrimp for approximately 1 minute per side then transfer to a paper towel-lined plate for draining
- Add ingredients for the No Sugar Added Bang Bang Sauce to a bowl. Mix with a fork.
- Place the breaded shrimp on a serving dish and top with the Bang Bang Sauce drizzle as well as the fresh chives.
